Making our extensions more affordable
About 5 years ago when we started working on SectionEx, our primary goal was to set a benchmark for Joomla extensions. Little did we know that as we progress, we now have a total of 4 huge and amazing Joomla extensions. Our team grew from 3 to 15 to be able to maintain all our extensions. These are not just any other extensions but extensions that does it's job in detail and in style of course.
In order to maintain the quality of our support and the continuous development cycle of all our products, we needed to charge for the service that we are providing. Some of you that have gotten in touch with us did provided us with feedback about the pricing strategy while some others agree with the current prices. There are also others who agree that we should be charging a more premium price on our extensions but in return deliver more addons for free.
With all these feedback at the back of my head, I have sat down with the team and also had lots of discussion with reputable Joomla extension developers and template clubs to fine tune our pricing structure while also being able to sustain the team of professional support and our development team. Our extensions are too cheap but at the same time, it's too expensive for some of the Joomla users out there. With this in mind, we have decided to fine tune our plans to make things even more affordable but yet at the same time retain the quality.
The personal bundle is targeted and is suitable for enthusiasts that would like to start a new website with all our amazing extensions. This bundle includes all of our extensions and it will include 6 months of support and updates for all products. Our Amazing Support is limited to 1 domain only. The price of this new bundle would be $149.
The club bundle is targeted for site owners who builds more than 1 site but doesn't really require a developer license per-se. The club bundle includes all of our extensions and it will include 12 months of support and updates for all products. Our Amazing Support is limited to 2 domains only. The price of this new bundle would be $299.
The agency bundle is targeted to web builders who builds more websites and uses our extensions throughout their sites. The agency bundle includes all of our extensions and it will include 12 months of support and updates for all products. Our Amazing Support is limited to 5 domains only. The price of this new bundle would be $599
This is just the tip of the iceberg. With both the Club & Agency bundle, we have a loyalty reward. The loyalty reward allows you to get up to 15% at the first year and 30% for the second year of renewals. Yep, it's on the entire bundle and it is not per extension. The only catch is that you have to maintain the subscription.
Some Common Questions And Answers
I have also gathered some of the questions that may arise on most of your heads below but if it isn't listed here, please feel free to ask in the comments section.
I already have a single extension, can I renew them instead?
The existing single extension pricing plans will remain unchanged and you could still renew these single extensions separately.
Upgrade To Bundlebutton.
12 months for everything?
The 12 months support and update applies to the Club and Agency bundle for all four of our extensions.
I only need a single extension. Will this still be available?
Yes, you will still be able to purchase these single extensions separately. However, we will be retiring the Developer plan from our single extension plans as it would be a no brainer compared to the Agency Bundle
Do you have a coupon code to help me make this decision?
Fortunately, yes and you can use the coupon code
MAKEMYDAY to get $10 rebate on any of our bundles for the first billing period.
Since I am also blogging about the bundle changes, I would also like to take this opportunity to answer a question that comes up frequently on our support channel. When your subscription runs out, you will not be able to access the downloads and the only reason behind that is because we do not recommend installing older versions as it may contain bugs or security issues. This does not mean that our extensions are insecure but it's a safety measure that we take to ensure everyone would be able to use our extension free from these bugs.
